RAStech Magazine‘s RAS Talk podcast is welcoming a new co-host for the new year.

Aquaculture expert, Justin Henry, will be joining the podcast with RAStech editor, Jean Ko Din. Henry is an aquaculture consultant with more than 30 years of industry experience. He has worked for several companies, including Grieg Seafood BC, Habitat Life and West Coast Salmon.

He now owns his own consultancy firm, Henry Aquaculture Consult Inc. He is also an aquaculture business director and lecturer at the University of British Columbia, where he launched Western Canada’s only graduate-level aquaculture program.


Henry has a background in civil engineering and agriculture. He is also a Registered Professional Biologist. He was a member of an OIE international committee on aquatic animal biosecurity from 2017-2020 to help establish animal health standards for the World Organization of Animal Health.

He serves as head of several organizations, including the Canadian Organic Seafood Association, the Organic Aquaculture Standards Interpretation Committee (Canada), the CGSB Organic Aquaculture Standards Technical Committee and the Pacific Organic Seafood Association.

Henry replaces Ko Din’s former co-host, Brian Vinci, who is the director of the Freshwater Institute (FI). Vinci stepped down from co-hosting in October 2023 to focus on new projects and initiatives with the FI team. Vinci first launched the RAS Talk podcast with former RAStech editor, Mari-len De Guzman, in January 2020.
